After School Program Site Lead
Born and raised in Oakland from immigrant parents, Stephanie was able to accomplish the goal of becoming a first generation college student. During that process, she faced many obstacles as a women of color. It became her mission to help guide and give students in low income communities the tools to be the leaders and the people they are meant to be.
As a youth she joined the Martin Luther King Jr. Freedom Center where she focused on learning social justice issues and studied Dr. King. As an adult she became a mentor teaching youth and the Director of Student Services.
In 2014 she joined Girls Inc., serving youth in the same middle school she attended,
as a program leader. Shortly thereafter in 2015, the opportunity arose and she applied to become the All STARS Program Coordinator. She is looking forward to continuing her journey in the pursuit of justice and change at Aurum Prep.
